MINI Traveller exposed

2007-01-31 07:33

Mini Traveller is due to go on sale later this year

We have thrown the doors open on MINI's upcoming Traveller.

The undisguised prototype, snapped undergoing cold-climate testing in northern Scandinavia these days, looks essentially as expected, given the spate of like-bodied concept cars that have been seen on the auto show circuit recently.

The car incorporates barn-style rear doors that split down the middle.

The doors themselves have thoughtfully been cut wide to incorporate the brake lights, affording a large aperture for easy cargo loading.

Additionally, the model gains one suicide-hinged side-door on the passenger side of the vehicle. It is made to open wide to ease entry to the back seat.

In truth, the "Traveller" name hasn't been officially announced, but the historically-correct name is widely expected to be affixed to the five-seater when the car finally hits the road later this year.
